Corson Alloys

Corson or Corson bronze is a copper nickel silicon system which maintains the most fundamental advantages of copper alloys i.e. excellent conductivity, whilst providing adequate mechanical and physical properties to be considered for industrial applications.
Significant advancement of these alloys occurred over time and as the grain size and microstructure were adjusted to provide superior property profiles from the Cu–Ni–Si alloys. Continue reading

Manganese Bronze Alloys

Bronze alloys exhibit very good toughness, strength, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, and thermal conductivity.
As one of the oldest alloyed materials a range of applications exist to take advantage of the various positive characteristics such as high load bearings, bushings and hydraulic cylinder parts. Continue reading

Cu-MgO Composites

Metal matrix composites reinforced with ceramic particles can be interesting for a range of applications due to their strength performance at high temperatures and a relatively low thermal expansion potential.
Manufacturing of Cu-MgO composites critically requires that the raw materials have a very high level of purity (99.5-99.9%) to achieve the desired manufacturing results. Continue reading
